Back in February, the Milwaukee Bucks announced that Oshkosh, Wisconsin would be the home of the organization’s new NBA D-League affiliate.
As ground was broken on a new downtown Oshkosh arena and the parent franchise geared up for a playoff appearance, speculation swirled regarding what the newest NBA Developmental League organization was to be called. The team solicited ideas from fans, and we even tossed a few suggestions out there.
Thursday, the D-League organization announced in a press release that the team will be called…Wisconsin Herd. According to the team, “The Wisconsin Herd name reflects the Bucks brand while representing the Bucks as a statewide organization from the top down.”
Season tickets for the Herd’s 2017-18 season are on sale now.
